Systemic resonances and interferences: Impressions from the congress of the EFTA from 7th to 10 September 2022 in Ljubljana
On 27 April 2023, Guy Ausloos passed away. It is with great emotion and sadness that I write these lines in his memory.
Those who knew him will remember his simplicity, his empathy, his kindness and his deep and warm voice, so pleasant to listen to…Many others were not so lucky but were and will be impressed by the richness of his thinking through his book “La compétence des familles” and the many articles he wrote.
Guy Ausloos has left his mark on our generation of pioneers of the systemic approach in Europe, as he has left and will continue to leave his mark on today’s young professionals.
Cecilia Edelstein and her colleagues will discuss the experience of a one-week residential project funded by the European Union, within the context of Erasmus +, which focused on the mental health of young adults, intitled YAMI – Young Adults, Mental health and Inclusion. Twenty-six mental health care workers (mainly psychologists and psychiatrist) of 5 different European countries (Belgium, France, Greece, Italy – the sponsoring partner – and Spain) participated in the meeting. The meeting took place last November and aimed to create a European network on mental health of young adults.
